Rough start for Switzerland

10.02.2012 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger lost his first match of the Davis Cup rubber against America's John Isner 6-4, 3-6, 6-7(4), 2-6 today. The USA took a 2-0 lead in their World Group first-round tie as Stanislas Warinka also lost his match against Mardy Fish earlier in the afternoon.

Roger had a great start and only lost four points on his own serve. But Isner started to turn things around in the second set, when he increased the pressure enormously. Roger had little answer to his opponent's excellent serve, and the crowd of 7'000 people in Fribourg was stunned into silence at Roger's first loss in Davis Cup singles in eight years.

Roger and Stan are due to face Mike Bryan and Ryan Harrison in Saturday's doubles. The match starts at 2.30 pm.

Roger, I am so sad and sorry about this loss.
After you won the first set everything changed.
I wish you could wake up and remember who you are.
We love you and support you no matter what.

Shame on you Roger, I don't know what is happening with you, you seem like you lost the interest on wining, I hope you can improve your self, other wise it will be a long and sad season for all the fans that admire you as I do.

Dearest Champion Roger:

Sorry about the rough start. Tough luck since the start of the year Champ, you're getting all the giant players, tall like telephone pole, Karlovic, Tomic, Delpotro and now Isner .. Hope tomorrow brings you all better luck, and hope you're enjoying your home crowd support & your buddies comradery. Keep well Champ and see you on that "funky" clay tomorrow.

Much love
Your loyal fan from NY, Grace.
